It wasn’t just a surreal finals series for the Cleveland Cavaliers, but the entire season has been a perfect storm for the team. They did not dominate from game 1-of-82 up to the regular season finale – they didn’t need to. The plan was to be as healthy as they can for the postseason, and when they accomplished this, the true potential of this team unraveled before our eyes.

If you truly appreciate greatness, how he lorded over every major statistical category in the biggest stage, against a team whom many pundits awarded the trophy to even before the playoffs started after posting the best regular season run in NBA history led by a back-to-back MVP, and his inspiring performance to lift his team when they were faced with the biggest of odds, vote for every category where LeBron James is nominated.
But most important of all, DO CAST YOUR VOTE.
